Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year

Develop a solid grounding in electronic and electrical engineering, and set yourself up for success. This new four year degree route (incorporating a foundation year) covers applied mathematics, physics and electronic engineering. Successful completion of the foundation year enables you to progress onto Year 1 of any of our electronic engineering or robotics degrees. You will experience being part of the University from the start, taught on campus by University lecturers and using University laboratories in practical sessions. You’ll take advantage of one-to-one mathematics support during term with our SUM: UP scheme. You will progress towards becoming a Chartered Engineer with appropriate professional training and experience. * Develop an innovative engineering or robotics project. Examples of previous projects include building an FM frequency bug, a small robot with on-board computer, and an electronic synthesiser. * Immerse yourself in a degree accredited by the Institution for Engineering and Technology (IET) and meet the educational requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). * Take advantage of our flexible course, allowing you to switch between electronics and robotics until your final year, as your interests develop. * Advance with a course where our students are consistently recognised by industry as being both capable and well prepared for their careers. Our graduates regularly obtain placements and jobs at companies such as Allen & Heath, BAE Systems, Babcock Marine, GE Aviation, Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls-Royce. * There is a possibility of transfer to BEng after the first year and MEng after the second year, subject to you demonstrating satisfactory progress. * The foundation year is an integral part of the extended degree. Completion of the foundation year will not lead to a separate award or qualification its own right but will provide access to Year 1 of your degree.
